Re: Manual Note Fingerings

AFP is growing, but not much new results I'm afraid. My first copy was done as a simple prototype, with quite a bit of hacks. Now that the implementation is getting bigger, it was not going to work, so I started refactoring, rewriting the main part. It's not too long, but I still can't find free tim...

Re: Live video feed of hands

hey everyone. it's a good idea, I'd want that if there was a choice. But few points may be problematic. one, how does it fare from the pedagogic viewpoint? Seeing your fingers can make you play "with synthesia" easier, but does the skill transfer well to normal playing? No change? Better? Worse? (pl...

Re: Automatic Fingering Prediction 0.1ish

Wow, it looks good. Thanks, I'll have to check how it stores the fingering data. If I can parse it, the users can provide sample fingering by using that program. I can't check now since I'm in work, can you tell whether the interface for inputting fingering is easy (for a complete song)?

Re: Automatic Fingering Prediction 0.1ish

I have hope s that one day next week, or maybe the next one after that, or maybe...? would be the big day for AFP 0.2. Anyway, I wanted to ask Nicholas, or any other knowledgeable person here. Do you have any recommendations for a .NET midi playback framework? I mean, for sending midi events to the ...

Re: Automatic Fingering Prediction 0.1ish

oops. I'm constantly fighting for deadlines, hence still not found much time. Also, I restarted my piano lessons, the teacher is not happy with my hands and tries to relax them into a mush. So, no more time reading about fingering, rather, studying fingering :) On the good side, polyphonic midis. On...

Re: Keyboard Only Navigation by TonE

Thanks TonE. I'll test it as soon as I find the time, it will really be useful. A suggestion: is it possible for the modifier to be a pedal? I never use the soft pedal, or even the sostenuto. Are the pedals defined in autohotkeys, can I map them to enter/esc, or settings like "middle C while depress...

Re: Automatic Fingering Prediction 0.1ish

I wasn't referring to your algorithm, but to the metadata. I assume someone out there will want to transcribe fingerings for some piece they are working on. It would be easy to choose the wrong database relation for fingers to keys. oh, sorry :) yeah, the metadata would be problematic. it should be...

Re: Automatic Fingering Prediction 0.1ish

both can be coded. I can add those features without much effort i.e. multiple keys with a finger can be coded if any other fingering is too hard/impossible and the finger in question can depress those multiple keys. Even, mute sustain changes was possible in the beginning, I disabled it explicitly (...

Re: Digital Piano

If you haven't bought it yet, can I recommend that you look for used models? Yamaha, roland, kawai etc. pianos are of high quality and are built to last. High end digital pianos that are well above 12 years old are still much better than most new cheap models. Although they keep their values in seco...

Re: Automatic Fingering Prediction 0.1ish

Note that, those note fingering may be later used by the synthesia midi editor; when you are adding song metadata, you can use the fingering you developed as well. The reverse is also true; an extension to the metadata editor may be written to export the song notes/fingering to use in AFP parameter ...

Re: Automatic Fingering Prediction 0.1ish

yeah.. umm.. well. I did very little work since my last post. It's still in the same phase. Lately, most of the time is not spent on the algorithm itself but GUI, input output etc., which is, honestly, very boring. But I have some free time coming up, I'll try to finish the basics. To make the softw...

Re: Automatic Fingering Prediction 0.1ish

The new version got delayed but I'm still working. I've finished most of what I was planning, loads midis etc. Now I'm improving the midi import to differentiate between channels and polyphonic melodies. And the more important news, I've finished the first version of the genetic algorithm for findin...

Post your setup

No "post your setup" thread? I thought those were obligatory in music-related forums :) Considering synthesia requires both a monitor and a piano, I'm curious about how your setups look. Where do you place the monitor? Where does the keyboard sit? Can you see the notes clearly, or control the comput...

Re: MP3

After a few more years, there will probably be having a new format that incorperates a new way of putting midi information inside MP3-quality music it's not the technology that is lacking, it's the motive. there are high fidelity formats with different channels and it would be trivial to add metada...

Re: MP3

if the author is willing to make a midi available (and has a digital keyboard), he can just play it once and record that playing to midi.

Re: Automatic Fingering Prediction 0.1ish

Actually any simple text format would work, for example also this: 1234 1345 But that approach would not be suitable for polyphonic pieces. AFP currently uses 2 output types. One consists of an array of all 88 notes, thus contains both which notes are suppressed and the accompanying finger. (think ...

Re: MP3

Unfortunately, MP3 files do NOT contain any note information, thus, there is no way to show which notes to play. You have to convert MP3 files to midi (or another format with note information) and currently there exists no robust way to do that automatically. Celemony melodyne will be released in fe...
